Now did you have a perceived notion of a strain doing something differently?
Yes I did. I could tell you a short story.
I was growing a strain from the National park Taman Negara in Malaysia, this strain I was told was a newer strain and hadn't a long history of cultivation. I took a dose of 4g with coaco drink and proceded to trip in my usual way. I liked to look at the candle with our lady of Guadalupe when I trip but this mushroom wanted me to look at a picture of Durga off to my left side. The trip itself wasn't much of a body load or visuals. Instead the trip gave me a feeling of mental clairity on the come down that was very creative in nature. Usually I feel a clairity of mind that draws itself to introspection of the rational kind, yet this state of mind I was in was creative and compeled me to write poetry. Seven or Eight Poems flooded out of me, a productivity that I don't often have.
Now it isn't the case that this specific strain gave me a trip that no other strain could have, or that this strain will always give me this same trip more or less. Since there are so many factors that go into creating a mushrooms experience it is higly likely that strain was just a single factor in a multiplicity of factors that made this trip different and special. Set and setting is a large group of factors which I think strain, and more specifically: genetics, plays a part in.
The difference between strain I have only noticed in the higher than microdose range
